Custoza Doc Zaleo

Classic

Obtained from the finest grapes, with a straw yellow colour, lightly aromatic bouquet and fresh, delicate, slightly bitter finale.

Grape Varieties

Trebbiano toscano, Garganega, Chardonnay, Friulano.

Vineyard (geographical position and characteristics)

The vineyards are located in the southeast part of the Lake Garda moraine basin. Their age varies from 7 years for Chardonnay to an average of 30 for Garganega. The hilly morainal soil is largely calcareous and gravelly-sandy.

Vinification

The vinification process starts as soon as the grapes reach the cellar: after crushing and criomaceration they undergo soft pressing. The must then ferments at a heat-controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C to maintain the fragrance of the fruit.

Zaleo & Cuisine

Excellent with light dishes such as raw fish and shellfish, unequalled as an aperitif. Serve at 10-12°C.
